    Looks like I have a meeting for 6pm downtown. Depending on the length, I may not be on the Brecks Side of Rivers 'till after 8. I'll swing by anyway to see if anyone's still around.

    Cheers,

    I'm on 0600-1400 this week, picked up the wife and kid yesterday, so I'm not sure if I'll be in tonight- I'm pretty much in zombie mode now as I was on the other shift last week.

    I get off at 1400 and need to finish up on the fence today. Shouldn't take too long as I only have to hang about 50 more pickets and then I'm done till I frame up the gate. Weather is the big question mark- if it rains I'm not going to be building and active, and will most likely veg out with the kid and fall asleep watching cartoons with him.

    I was kept up by things that go "bang"....

    .. and unfortunately, they weren't a gaggle of redheads. :(

    Just got home from the range, about to saddle up and head that way gents. See ya soon.

    Sorry I didn't make it out either. Got company at the house this week. Hopefully next month will be better.

    I'm headed up to N GA mountains on the 16th for family vacation. Twisties here I come! Might have to see if I can find some decent dirt roads to explore, but I'll leave the serious stuff for you KLR riders.

    Enjoyed it, folks!

    (I'm STILL full from that burger. Thank goodness I skipped lunch yesterday!)

    Now, who was it that I was talking with about reloading? Please PM me to discuss it, but bear in mind I'm still learning as well.

    Our meeting ran late and then I got dragged to the Vendue rooftop for a beer. Damn co-workers. :freaky

    Where is the next meetup? Anyone been to Fuel on Rutledge?

    Hey JAFO,

    We'll have to go shooting some time. What range do you go to? I have a Springfield Armory XD45

    Cheers,

    haven't been to Fuel- I assume you mean Rutledge downtown?

    Love downtown- except for parking the cage. Haven't been there on the bike but once. I like the idea of a dinner ride out that way.

    Believe we have a candidate already restaurant for next month- which I have forgotten- but I nominate your idea for the next available slot.

    I usually go to Trader World's range since it's close, but don't mind checking out others. Been wanting to check out an indoor rifle range for one thing- any ideas? I need to sight-in my deer rifle for this season, soon.

    I want to put a 650R motor in my KLR, and need it done this weekend.

    Who'll help? :ears:

    Hey guys -

    Although it's technically not an ADV Dinner, here's something that could be fun. On Thursday, July 31, there's going to be a special theatrical showing of "Long Way Down", Ewan MacGregor & Charley Boorman's ADV trip from Scotland to South Africa. It was originally filmed as a multi-part mini series for television, this is a two-hour "director's cut" for theatrical release. It's showing at 1930 on this one night only. I'm definitely going, only variable on my end is whether the wife and kids want to tag along. Here's a link with more info and advance ticket sales: http://www.fathomevents.com//details.aspx?eventid=725 :evil

    My idea is this: let's go see this at Azalea Square in Summerville, and then go have some food and drink somewhere in that immediate area afterwards. What say y'all?

    Just bought tix online (frikkin' Fandango charges a "convenience fee" of an extra buck a ticket - that's bullshit!). Wife and kids are going to come along, they'll follow in the car. That way, if you guys want, we can go out for a beer after the show :beer , and I'll have a ride home on the bike.

    I think the Greg's idea of getting together for dinner before the show might be fun :dg . Anybody up for that? How about suggestions for food in the area?

    See you there!
